Clean & Simple Christmas

Well I am back from vacation and went to see Mom today and now back and decided to play a little bit with some new stuff.  My husband started his football season back tonight, so for the next 3 months I will be a Friday Night Football widow.  But I have found in the past that is my best time to create.  I don't feel like I have to sit next to him or watch TV with him.  But, I will tell you that by the end of the season I am ready for the Friday nights to be back to normal.
 
My new stuff is Christmas so, I guess you could say that I am starting my Christmas cards in August which is the norm for me.  I don't usually just sit down and make 50 of the same card, which might be easier than doing it this way, but it is a lot of fun.  So here is my card using the Clean & Simple sketch that was posted today!
 
 
I am using the new festive flurry framelits and the festive flurry stamp set.  I always say this, but I am going to love these.  I have great ideas already.
 
Here is a side view of the card!
 
 
And the inside!
 
 
And the card with the envelope using the envelope framelit.  I am definitely going to love this especially for Christmas!
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope to post something new later.  Who knows what I can come up with.
